Finish carpenter Kit Camp started his career building wooden boats, then attended the College of the Redwoods to study with woodworker James Krenov. That experience led to a job creating and running a woodworking program for young children at a private school in Las Vegas. Now Kit lives in San Diego with his wife and three daughters, who occasionally leave him with a little time and energy to write, play, and work in his shop.
